Positive Aspects of Social Media
Social media has greatly impacted the way nonprofits can raise support and spread crucial information. It has also become a great way to promote services and products. Statistically, 78% of women and 68% of men use at least one form of social media, and that is the majority of the population. Companies are also able to use social media as a way to view their demographic, then cater to who they are reaching, like expectant mothers.
Information and news are able to reach people faster than ever and are widely more accessible. With the help of social media, expectant mothers can find the services they need, and others can find volunteer or giving opportunities.
It is not only a good place to spread information, but also a good place to store it. Social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, and more offer a place for individuals, companies, businesses, and nonprofits to keep their information once it is posted. This allows individuals who are interested to go back and see past posts with information, helping them stay both up-to-date and in the loop about past and present changes.
Lastly, social media builds community. It allows people to stay in touch as well as meet others. More specifically, it can help hurting mothers know they are not alone. While promoting services or information. Mothers and women can find those around them going through similar struggles and decisions. It can serve as a form of encouragement, reminding them there are others like them and that Jesus never forsakes them through life’s challenges.
